Overview Built in CA and rescued from a duck hunting club using it as a duck blind. This trailer was painted camo....
Exterior

Patched holes, shortened street side lower window to accommodate new seating area, added forward facing scare light (to cover hole). New axles, new plumbing, new, systems, new bumper box (old one was gone). Removed aftermarket awning, replaced all window seals and glass and polished trailer. Most windows had interior latches and operators replaced.

Exterior patches were used where old furnace and water heater were removed.

There's a detailed discussion about updates here: http://www.airforums.com/forums/f157/new-project-1964-overlander-88805.html

We tried to keep the intent of the 64 design in tact but reconfigured the area around the toilet, removing bench to make this space functional. We also changed front couch to an L shaped seating arrangement with a pedestal table that can be removed.

New sink, fridge, furnace and updated counters were added and the original (and badly damaged) stove was swapped out for a stove from a 1977 Tradewind.

The subfloor was repaired with 2 sections replaced (near front door and in back in bathroom) and new floating floor added.

These pics are the trailer as we found it -->

Counter over fridge was extended through the vertical closet. That closet was cut in half, retaining the upper storage space and lower portion to accommodate counter extension. The door was reworked to cover new smaller closet spaces. Two fantastic fans were added and the astro dome replaced with custom cover.

On the exterior, we added a new bucket fillable water fill (off a mod seventies argosy) and outdoor electrical plugs.

Systems and Running Gear

All new. New axles, new brakes, new wheels and tires, new propane tanks, new, new, new.... Please send cash

We also added a small gray tank in the street side rear closet and replaced the fresh water tank. New inverter, new furnace, new water heater, solar on roof, still considering the need for AC or not.

The bathroom reconfiguration was a substantial project. The batteries, electric panel and plumbing lines had to be moved. The batteries were moved to space under the curbside bed. The electric panel was moved inside into bathroom closet, and then empty space in the rear where this stuff used to be was enclosed becoming part of the bathroom interior. All plumbing lines and electrical lines had to be rerun. new dump valves were added in rear under the aft streetside bathroom cabinet.
